Summer Courses in Umbria will take place!

King Arthur – music of Purcell and contemporaries

21–25 July in Perugia, Palazzo della Penna (Italy), optional: 26 July in Deruta

This year would have been the tenth time that Accademia Amsterdam organises summer courses for music and art lovers in Perugia. We wanted to celebrate this anniversary with Henry Purcell's famous opera.

Zero new corona cases in UmbriaIn spite of the corona crisis we still can and will organise these summer courses as planned. But a semi-staged performance with choir of Purcell's King Arthur might be too complicated to organise. Therefore, we decided to celebrate in 2021 and organise the summer courses now on a small scale. Meanwhile, flights to Rome and Perugia have resumed and travelling is free again (within the regions and from 15th June between most EU-countries). The Umbrians expect us: we have the full co-operation of the city councils of Perugia and Deruta. We guarantee "corona-safe" courses and performance(s).

The courses are taking place in the beautiful medieval city of Perugia, a place full of history and inspiration. The museum "Palazzo della Penna", situated in an historic city palace, offers us a hospitality.
We invite you to play in the instrumental ensemble or execute baroque dances. We perform in some of the most beautiful locations in Umbria.
